Nigerian Singer Simi Encourages Men to Embrace Vulnerability

Renowned Nigerian singer Simi has advocated for men to express their emotions openly.

NATURENEX reports that the singer stated that she finds joy in seeing men embrace their vulnerability.

In an interview on the 90’s Baby Show, Simi shared her thoughts on the subject, expressing that she finds it beautiful when men allow themselves to cry rather than suppress their emotions.

I find it beautiful when men cry because I’m surrounded by many men who feel they have to be macho or strong all the time,

When you see men and women going through the same pain, the man often says, ‘I have to be strong for my wife or kids.’ I think that’s okay, but I don’t think strength means not being vulnerable or crying,” she said.

Simi emphasized that crying signifies a man’s sense of safety and comfort with his surroundings, allowing him to let go of pent-up emotions.

She noted, “I like it when men cry because it means that you feel safe with who you are with, you can be vulnerable, and you can let go. I have seen African men act like they are the warrior, protector, and provider. But if it’s not coming out in your tears, it’s going inside your heart, and one day you are just going to explode.
